Move Data, September 27, 2018

In my organization, we use Exchange Server for data management. The cache copy of user account on Exchange Server creates OST file.  As OST files allow users to work offline and synchronize the changes with Exchange Server when they connect to the server again. But many times, the situation arises where Exchange Server goes through unplanned downtime due to which mailboxes cannot be synced. To avoid such a situation in future, I planned to import OST to eM Client. As eM Client is the default email application on my machine to manage my email data.

To execute OST to eM Client migration, I started searching on the Internet the way to move OST to eM Client application. After a lot of searches, I found there are various other users like me who had the same queries as:
